FOOTBALL: Middle Tennessee’s Stockstill, Moffatt earn TSWA weekly awards
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee’s Brent Stockstill and Jovante Moffatt were named the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, by the Tennessee Sportswriters Association for their efforts in contests from October 1-7.
Stockstill completed 25-of-40 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns while running for an additional 31 yards and a score in a 34-17 victory at Marshall, the first in program history in Huntington. The Murfreesboro, Tenn., native was 11-for-15 passing for 101 yards and one TD in the third quarter alone, helping the Blue Raiders erase a halftime deficit and take the lead for good.
The redshirt senior also topped the 10,000-yard mark in the win, becoming one of just nine C-USA quarterbacks to achieve the feat and one of 24 in NCAA history. It marked his 16th career 300-yard passing game. Stockstill has completed 67 percent of his throws for 1,299 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions through five games this season.
Moffatt posted a career-best 17 tackles with a forced fumble and two pass breakups in just his second game of the season in the win at Marshall. The Union City, Tenn., native recorded six solo stops and his forced fumble in the second quarter set-up a field goal that tied the game at 10.
The senior safety was part of a Blue Raider defense that limited the Thundering Herd to 149 total yards and seven points in the second half, as Middle Tennessee erased a 17-10 halftime deficit. Moffatt has 25 tackles with one interception and three pass breakups this year.
